30,000 app users can’t
be wrong!

One year ago we launched The Vinyl District Record Store Locator app for iPhone and Android. Happy one year birthday to us!

With about 30,000 users currently, and a few thousand record stores listed from 28 countries around the world, it would seem like we are the record buying travelers’ go-to app of choice, and we couldn’t be more honored.

Of course, you, the app user, have also been a huge help in keeping us informed on store openings and closings, and whatever else—thank you. We’d also like to extend a zillion thanks to our development wizards at Shoutem for their tireless efforts on behalf of this project.

We hope to keep on keeping on, as we all help each other do what we love—visiting and supporting independent record stores! Happy holidays all!

The Vinyl District Record Store Locator App: The Forum

This is the first in an occasional series for those who have downloaded The Vinyl District’s Record Store Locator app. It’s our chance to update you on where we’re at, and where we’ll be headed.

In just over a month since we launched, over 10,000 of you have downloaded the app, and hopefully have taken it for a test drive. We’d like to thank each and everyone of you for giving it a shot. I’d especially like to thank our developer, Shoutem, for being so supportive.

To bring everyone up to date, we now have stores listed in ten countries: Australia (77), Belgium (32), Canada (52), Germany (107), Italy (1), Sweden (11), Switzerland (10), Turkey (2), United Kingdom (over 350), and of course the United States (over 1,200). The great thing is that everyone has helped. And we’re far from finished. We’ve received emails from people all over the globe letting us know about stores that need to be listed, and stores that are no longer in business.

Should you need to contact us with store openings, closings, a change of address, or a shop we’ve overlooked, you can always reach us at info[@]thevinyldistrict.com or on our app Facebook page.

Introducing the TVD GPS-based Record Store Locator App for your iPhone or Android!

…and it’s free!

For your iPhone here. | For your Android here.

‘Tis the month for giving (and for giving back) and as such we’re delighted to debut the TVD App this holiday season. It’s the only GPS-based record store locator app in the US for you vinyl and record store obsessives.

Have a 5 hour layover in an unfamiliar city? Hit the “All Stores” icon for directions to the nearest indie shop and while away your time between flights digging through the crates. You can also check in and share your finds on Facebook, Twitter, and Foursquare.

Know of a store that’s just opened or just closed or just moved? Add or update that store’s status to the app. We’re in it together, right?

The TVD app also allows you to discuss your finds within the app’s social network—and we’d have been remiss if we didn’t allow you to follow TVD with real time updates—so we tossed that in too.

Let’s take a tour, shall we?
